Publisher Description

A cemetery full of the restless dead. A town so wicked it has already burned twice, with the breath of the third fire looming. A rural, isolated bridge with a terrifying monster waiting for the completion of its summoning ritual. A lake that allows the drowned to return, though they have been changed by the claws of death. These are the shadowed, liminal spaces where the curses and monsters lurk, refusing to be forgotten.

Hauntings, and a variety of horrifying secrets, lurk in the places we once called home. Written by New York Times bestselling, and other critically acclaimed, authors these stories shed a harsh light on the scariest tales we grew up with.

Expressionless Face“This was not it for me. There was one or two stories that were really engaging but everything else was pretty mediocre at best.”
“This was the first anthology I've read. I really enjoyed the set up of the book, and unlike a lot of folks I enjoyed how each story was really different.”
